Foraging in the city with Diego Bonetto
Naturalist Diego Bonetto will introduce you to the wonders and possibilities of edible weeds on a two-hour urban tour. To some plantain, dandelion, chickweed and sow-thistle are a nuisance, to others they are a delicious salad and a seasonal treat. Learn about the most common species growing in your garden, along the green belts and in parks and reserves. Find out how they have been used for food, craft and natural remedies. Discover ways to safely harvest from the urban 'wild' and enrich your diet with vitamins and minerals.
